Moving houses and worrying about how to send all your stuff? An app called The Porter makes calling a truck home as easy as booking a cab.

The Transporter

If you have got a lot of furniture to lug around because you’re shifting your house, or are worried about to lug back all the secondhand furniture you scored at Oshiwara, you don’t need to look further. Download this app that we recently discovered and used called The Porter.

How it works is that you choose a date in advance {it could be the same day or any date later} along with the time. Then you pick from a fleet of trucks – from Tata Ace, Canter, Super Ace among others, each of which can carry a particular amount of weight.

The prices are dependent on the size of the truck you’re picking, and the distance it’s travelling. We chose a largish truck which was enough to carry the contents of an entire bedroom, and the distance was from Chembur to Bandra. The cost was around INR 670.

So, We're Saying...

The service was very friendly and timely, and we would definitely be choosing this for transporting our things without a hassle.

#LBBTip: Remember they’re movers, not packers but if you request and give ‘em a tip, they may just help you out.
